Raspberry Cucumber Smoothie

Raspberries are actually in season and priced decently right now, so I am loving adding them to my smoothies!  You all know that I use carrots and cucumbers a lot for my veggies portion – they are delicious and I have yet to find a smoothie they haven’t tasted great it!

Healthy Raspberry Cucumber Smoothie

So, for this smoothie I have carrots, cucumbers, some banana, coconut water, and those amazing looking raspberries to my blender.  SO GOOD!

Here are some of the health benefits to the ingredients I selected for this protein smoothie:

Raspberries – These beautiful berries are rich in vitamins, antioxidants and fiber.  They also have a high concentration of ellagic acid which has been said to help prevent cancer.

Cucumbers – These are great for rehydration. Cucumbers are also a great source of vitamin B, so that means they are a natural pick-me-up.

Carrots – The orange powerfood will give you vitamin A and is also linked to preventing cancer, giving you healthier looking skin and aids in digestion.

Bananas – Besides tasting great, they are loaded with potassium which helps muscles recover and relax, and they have also been known to help you sleep better.

The result is refreshing and absolutely delicious!  So go ahead, make this Raspberry Cucumber Smoothie, sit back and ENJOY!
